Multiple Manitobans took home GMA Covenant Awards during this weekend's live broadcast of the 42nd Canadian Christian awards show.
Jordan St. Cyr, who moved from Niverville, Manitoba to Nashville, Tennessee this year, cleaned up with the most awards won at the GMA Covenant Awards. St. Cyr won six awards, including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year.
"Receiving 6 Covenant Awards tonight was truly incredible!" says St. Cyr on social media. "Thank you Lord for the team You’ve surrounded me with and the songs You’ve put in my heart."
The Color took home the award for Pop Artist of the Year.
"We've been a band now for 10 years now, which is kind of wild," says Jordan Janzen, lead singer of The Color during the awards show. "We started as a rock band and wanted to reach the masses with the message of hope through spreading the gospel through music and found that pop was a good place to sit. Thank you so much for this generous award."
Jaylene Johnson won two Covenant awards. The first was for Seasonal Song of the Year in collaboration with co-host of the show, Brian Doerksen, for 'Just Before The Silent Night.' She also received Canadian Christian Song of the Year for her participation in 'Hope' by Brant Pethick.
Winnipegger Steve Bell took home the award for Video of the Year for 'In Memoriam.'
The award ceremony was broadcast live online with many of the winners sharing their thoughts and thank-yous via Zoom calls. The hosts were Brian Doerksen and Marika Siewert who started off the event with one of their songs. The entire 42nd GMA Covenant Awards show can be watched here.
